Convicted paedophile re-offends 

An already convicted paedophile has been jailed after being caught with indecent images of kids again

Alan Godridge, of Cover road, Darfield admitted four counts of making indecent images of children and two of breaching a previous sexual harm prevention order

The 73-year-old – who has been jailed before for the same offence – appeared at Sheffield Crown Court and was sentenced to 16 months in prison

But Judge Michael Slater said he would suspend the jail term after being told that Godridge had been ‘frank’ about his offending and had decided to get rid of his wi-fi

The court heard the charges relate to images of all levels of indecency including those classed in the worse, showing the rape or torture of children.

The images were of children of pre-pubescent age being abused or exploited
